2:05am
night, this is the troublemaker. here is the cold front. slowly and i mean slowly making its way across. with that, all the moisture pooling up out of the gulf brings heavy showers in the northeast. watch the timing of this. how fast it goes and whether it stalls out. it will impact the rain we are seeing the next several days into the northeast. here is what we know about the southeast. forecasting heavy rain. two to three inches. atlanta, one to two inches. now the northeast, we are going to see, it depends on where the heavier thunderstorms are. there are place that is won't see much. if you get the heavy downpour, you have a threat for flooding. >> thanks for the warning, we appreciate it. a wildfire is raging out of control across southern california. the fast moving silver fire in riverside county burned 6,000 acres, destroyed nearly a dozen

2:15am
uncomfortable and been critical of what it sees as a rollback of democracy and human rights here. a crackdown on the political opposition. itis been unhappy with a lot of anti-u.s. rhetoric in russian discourse. russia doesn't like being spoken to that way. sees it as meddling. that brings us to this significant point where you have the u.s. administration saying in a not too subtle way, we see no point in the leaders getting together. there's no point in talking. we don't think anything of significance can go achieved. >> you look at the calendar, you have a summit coming up. later, you have the winter olympics happening in russia. it could affect the u.s. participation in these games? >> reporter: i don't think it's likely you will see a boycott. nothing at that level. in terms of an area of continued
2:16am
cooperation, these two countries will still work together on counterterrori counterterrorism. it's a big area surrounding the games. you have heard of the risk of the anti-gay propaganda which makes it illegal to promote homosexual relationships. the united states doesn't like this law, certainly doesn't want it to apply to visitors there. that is potentially a point of further tension. as the games approach and continued outrage, as it's become likely gay athletes and activists are going to test that law during the course of the games. >> it is sure to be an issue. phil black in moscow, thank you so much. appreciate it. it is 16 minutes past the hour. we are hearing from the father of a man accused of killing three people at a government meeting in pennsylvania. peter says his son was distraught over the officials condemning and buying his

2:18am
>> still no verdict in the racketeering trial of james whitey bulger. the jury got the case tuesday. it's been deliberating ever since. wednesday, the panel asked the judge that it must reach a unanimous verdict on all allegations. the judge said yes. the mob boss faces a life sentence if convicted. no connection between april's deadly fertilizer explosion and a paramedic that responded. he was arrested and charged with having bomb making materials. prosecutors say there does not appear to be a leak between reid and what happened in west texas. 50 people died when the plant explo exploded. the exact cause has not been determined. >> here is a weird story. it's shark week. we get it. we can report a shark sighting in the unlikeliest of places.

2:34am
only difference, not as heavy rainfall. either way, inundated with thunderstorm after thunderstorm. obviously, we are still talking about the flooding concerns in the region. the only good news is the severe weather threat not stretching into missouri like we expected it to in yesterday's forecast. not looking for severe weather, but rain in the forecast. panhandle texas and oklahoma looking for the threat of the severe thunderstorms. large hail and strong winds. here is the cold front. notice the red and blue. it's stalled on the bottom. this moisture is coming from the gulf. the question mark is the top half of the cold front. how fast is it going to go? is it going to stall out? it depends on whether or not it stalls for how much rain we are expecting over the next several days as far as the southeast is concerned. we are looking at two to three inches in nashville. atlanta, one to two.
2:35am

2:38am
the attorneys assigned to help can't let it happen. >> they are in a terrible predickment. they have to stand by and watch the person they are charged with assisting to represent himself, essentially put the noose around his own neck. they view this as fundamentally inconsistent as lawyers. >> reporter: this is where he would end up. there hasn't been a military execution since 1961. the legal road to the death chamber is full of detours created by appeals and needs presidential approval. based on recent past cases, if he gets the death penalty, he may never be executed. military law expert jeffrey corn says the legal drama we saw unfold will not derail his murder trial. >> i suspect she's going to make
2:39am
major hassan acknowledge on the record, in this hearing that he understands the immense risk he's assuming. >> reporter: the question is what will happen next. what will the judge tell the three stand by attorneys. many legal experts, military legal experts said what they anticipate the judge will do is tell the three attorneys they have to continue on with their duty in assisting major hassan as stand by counsel. they are not sure at this point. the judge ordered everyone to reconvene thursday morning. perhaps we will find out what happens then. more questions about the deaths of two young boys in canada asphyxiated by a python in their home. the community remembered noah and connor barth as pictures showed them playing in glass
